Firstly, yes, Jeff and Lois have a blog here. Take a look over at the blogroll in the sidebar. You too could have a blog here. Just contact me or post a comment. It appears that Jeff & Lois haven’t posted anything yet (as of this writing), but they should soon, I hope.
Secondly, there aren’t many pictures in our online gallery right now. Three, to be exact. But we’ll be adding a bunch. After we upload more, the random image feature at the top of the sidebar will be a lot more interesting.
Thirdly, in response to Deb’s questions about the meaning of some of my license plate names, here are some explanations:
- GNU and GNU.ORG
- GNU stands for “GNU’s Not Unix”. It’s what’s known as a recursive acronym, or an acronym that refers to itself. It’s a programmer’s joke. The GNU project started the Free/Open Source software movement. More details available at their website: GNU.org.
- This is a geek joke. In the vi text editor, this command will perform a search-and-replace. Specifically, it will search for “M$” and replace it with “LN”. “M$” is commonly used to refer to Microsoft, and “LN” is referring to Linux.
- This is refering to Ubuntu, the Linux distribution that I use at work and at home. I highly recommend it to anyone who is looking for alternatives to Windows. Canonical, the company that is sponsoring the development of Ubuntu, will even send you a free CD, if you want. See ubuntu.com for details.
- I wanted to use UBUNTU, but it was not available.
